Your tree has such great form Deb...and a serene location. Does it take much pruning?

Thanks, Evan. I got this a couple years ago and was drawn to its form more than the foliage (many J.maples are showier). So, the initial pruning was already in place and I have just kind of cleaned it up each spring, trying to keep the underlying structure visible. I understand this particular tree is very slow growing which is perfect in this placement. It came from my cousin's collection, http://www.amazingmaples.net/ and he does a very nice job of shaping the trees.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

You're doing a great job Deb. I have so much trouble with this that I always admire an Acer this well shaped. Your cousin's collection is impressive btw.
